Following a a 103-80 loss at Chesapeake Energy Arena Wednesday night, John Wall was asked if he though OKC’s Russell Westbrook was the NBA’s fastest player. The third-year-point guard didn’t think twice before insisting he is the league’s fastest player.
According to John Rohde, The Oklahoman:
“No, I’m going to say myself..”
Wall wouldn’t even say for certain that Westbrook was the league’s second-fastest player.
“It’s tough man,” said Wall, who was coming off a career-high 47 points Monday against Memphis and finished with 18 points and 12 assists against the Thunder. “There’s a couple fast guys in this league. He (Westbrook) is up there,Derrick (Rose) is up there, when he’s healthy. Mike Conley’s pretty quick. There’s a couple guys. Ty Lawson’s quick. So there’s a lot of guys, but I put myself first.”
